Love and Affection

“Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another.”

Romans 12:10


Whether you are religious or not, I think we can all use repetitive words of love and affection in these crazy, unsure times.

The Bible scripture comes from 3-Minute Devotions for a Cat Lover’s Heart. (If you know me, you would not be surprised at all that I have a cat-themed devotional. If you don’t know me, welcome to the land of purrs and fur!)

Anyhow, the story associated with today’s one-liner is enough to tug at anyone’s heartstrings. When you are done reading and “awwwing,” feel free to share your love, affection or friendship with someone in your circle, or kindness with a stranger. It creates a much better frame of mind than one from surly negative emotions. Don’t you agree?

    Yeah, you got a big awww out of me. I am always impressed and amazed to see how kind animals can be to one another, regardless of species. It makes me wonder when people accuse other people of acting like animals, if we’re not insulting the animals.

    I hope you have a great day, Mary. Enjoy the company of your furry coworkers. I have mine with me as I write.

      My furry co-workers are good to each other…for the most part. When we “act like animals,” it should be in reference to the sweetness rather than the negative connotation.

      It’s going to be an awesome day, Dan. The sun is shining!

  2. That’s so lovely. I’m a cat lover myself. I thought your devotions might be online but it appears not. The black and white photo is very good and apt.

      Thank you! It looks like the book is available at Amazon, Walmart and Barnes & Noble. Are you in the U.S.?

    What a great story. Can you stand one more awesome cat story? I once had a dog (a black lab mix) who got into a yellow jacket nest and got stung a bunch of times. She was really upset and when we got home, went into her crate, which was beside our bed, to lie down. Our cat, a flame point Siamese, went into the crate with her and he laid down between her paws. Didn’t move until the dog got up. What a great cat! I miss him!!!

      That’s an awesome, sweet story, Laurie. Whoever thought dogs and cats cannot care about one another in this way? They are more sensitive than e sometimes give them credit for.

    This might be the sweetest, most heart tugging story I’ve read in a long time. It not only shows kindness between species, but Sam went to a lot of work!

    • bikerchick57 says:

      It is a very sweet story and I wonder how Sam found one of the puppies. Must have been close, in the neighborhood perhaps.

    My all time favorite quote “in a world where you can be anything, be kind”. Love this Mary ❤

    Okay, that is truly a heart warming story. There’s something about animal love that is especially pure. 💛

      I love it when the kitties snuggle up together or when I come across a story like this. It’s so very endearing and cool!
